Reviewed by Trisha Dawn for Readers' Favorite

In one passionate night, Jordan and Mason succumb to their desires. It may have only been for one night but for both of them, it will be unforgettable. In Moonbeams of Unintended Consequences by Muffy Wilson, we follow Jordan’s and Mason’s lives after they have satiated their desires for each other. Jordan Taylor has made her dream come true of becoming an interior designer, despite some unexpected turns of events. She was also able to establish her own business. Meanwhile, Mason D’Istrafrio settled his busy schedule and has chosen to stay put more often than travelling for business. Muffy Wilson’s Moonbeams of Unintended Consequences narrates what happened when the two lovers met again after 10 years of not being in contact with each other.

I fell in love with Moonbeams of Unintended Consequences. The way Muffy Wilson wrote it, I was compelled to continue reading until I realized that I had read it in full. It was a very sad day for me when I reached the end. Why wouldn’t it be? It was written with class. The love scenes were beautifully described and each word ignited something from within. In addition to that, the story was not all about lovemaking. There was a true sense or idea, too. I was able to pick up a lesson or two from the story itself.

Then there were the characters. Jordan was exquisite. She’s this driven, passionate woman that any girl would like to become. I like how committed she was and how dedicated she has become. She’s the epitome of a strong woman. Mason was a gentleman all throughout. His character made me hope for more guys like him in this world. There was also Talia whom I adored. She had her own issues but she was a fighter. She’s really significant in this story. Moonbeams of Unintended Consequences is that one book I would like to read and fall in love with again and again. It’s a must-have not only for the romantics, but also for those who would like to become one.

Moonbeams of Unintended Consequences by Muffy Wilson is an interracial erotic romance centered around the passions of Jordan Taylor, a socialite, and Mason D’Istafrio, a talented opera singer. Woven into the sensual tale is also a heartwarming story of family and of lovers reconciled as Moonbeams of Unintended Consequences jumps between Jordan and Mason's singular night of passion to their reunion ten years later and the news she has to share.

Mason is a man with three children and a dying wife and is surprised when Jordan shows up at his office, telling him of the daughter they now have. Still in love with both her and his dying wife he is conflicted, mostly as to why it took Jordan so long to tell him. Things change when Jordan shares that their daughter is terminally ill and in desperate need of a liver transplant.

Moonbeam of Unintended Consequences by Muffy Wilson is a decent read that manages to straddle the worlds of erotica and family drama. The characters and their passions are larger than life, and firmly ensconced in the entanglements of their world. The writing is quite florid and sometimes I forgot that the book wasn't set in some bygone romantic era and was actually supposed to be quite modern. The language is quite flowery as Wilson leads us through to the heights of passion and the tensions of drama. Good for anyone looking for a light, romantic read.

In Moonbeams of Unintended Consequences by Muffy Wilson, we meet Jordan Taylor, a privileged child. She graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute and is registered to start at the California College of Art. In the fall she is planning to start her two-year curriculum to finish her masters in interior design. She first meets Mason D'Istrafrio when he appears on stage at the opening night of the San Francisco Symphony. Their eyes meet and a magical bond is formed, one that is both romantic and seductive. His magical voice fills her body with sensual thoughts. She spends a wonderful, romantic evening with him, one she will cherish for many years. They don't see each other again after that one night of heavenly bliss until ten years later, when she finds herself at the doors of his philanthropic company in need of help only he can offer.

Written in a beautiful, lyrical, flowing style, Muffy Wilson's book has captured an intense moment in time in a wonderfully worded and intimate style. Moonbeams of Unintended Consequences is a heartfelt and touching story of one moment in time, a time of wanton lust and love, without thought of consequences or tomorrow. One perfect moment captured forever. Many of us have experienced this "one perfect moment in time" and it often changes the course of our lives. We always look back with a fondness, an occasional yearning, but knowing we can never recapture this special time. The characters are enchanting and realistic, portraying their plight in a way that will touch anyone who has a heart. A wonderful, sad, touching, and beautifully told tale of love and hope. I loved the cover design. It was gorgeous, whimsical, mysterious and eye catching.

It was appropriately a lovely night when interior designer Jordan Taylor attended the theater to enjoy the sensuous songs of maestro Mason D’Istafrio. The moment he took that stage her breath was captured, her mind entranced, and her body came alive with emotions that must be satisfied. She felt his eyes on her and just knew that he was singing to her only. Following his performance, Mason was also afire with an intense need to find the ravishing beauty who had held him captivated. Surely she wasn’t a figment of his imagination. He must find her. He must have her. And have her he did. Body, mind and soul. She was his and he hers, if only for those fleeting hours after the concert. But they never forgot the passion shared and when ten years later they found themselves face-to-face once again, that shared passion ignited as if time had never separated them. The problem was that Mason was married and Jordan had a child. A critically ill child. Mason’s child. The result of their union in room 457.

Muffy Wilson has done it again with Moonbeams of Unintended Consequences. Wilson’s gift of intertwining erotic sex with actual reality has a spellbinding effect that leaves her readers gasping for air. In Moonbeams of Unintended Consequences not only does the story delight in the sensuous descriptions of love and lust, heart strings are ravaged by the plight of children left motherless as well as the fear of losing a child. Fans of Muffy Wilson will enjoy this addition to her growing list of credits.

In a great new offering from author Muffy Wilson, Moonbeams of Unintended Consequences will take readers on a fabulous, sexy and romantic ride that they won't soon forget. When the lovely Jordan meets handsome opera star Mason, their connection is electric from the start. Jordan becomes pregnant, but never tells Mason of their daughter, Lily, not wanting to infringe on his life and his relationship with his wife, whom he reconciled with soon after his passionate encounter with Jordan. But when Lily becomes gravely ill and needs a liver transplant, everything changes. Jordan realizes that Mason may be her only hope, and is willing to do anything to save her daughter's life, even if it means rekindling the dampened desires she has always held for Mason.

I very much enjoyed Moonbeams of Unintended Consequences. Author Muffy Wilson has done an excellent job in writing a book that is somehow both a sweet family story and a hot romance, all in one. That certainly is not an easy task, and one that could only be accomplished by a very skillful writer. Any reader who loves a great contemporary romance with real-life characters, not vampires or zombies, should absolutely read Moonbeams of Unintended Consequences. I am very pleased to highly recommend this book. I certainly look forward to reading more from author Muffy Wilson, and hope that she is already hard at work on her next great novel even as we speak!
